Swags appears in Zest section of the Houston Chronicle.... 10/2/16!

Marion was recently mentioned in the Zest section as having helped a client with her Italian styled villa in Bellaire.  Working with the architect and builder and most importantly, the client, she helped with design elements that allowed the client to place her furniture and keepsakes that were gathered over a lifetime of travel and work.  Input on granite, travertine, colors, cabinets, lighting and many other items simplified the implementation process.
